Llangefni Town Football Club has bagged a share of 11.5million pounds carrier bag charge fund
18th March 2016
We are delighted to announce we have bagged £8,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
The supermarket teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative, which saw grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to environmental and greenspace projects.
Eight million shoppers voted in stores up and down the country. And it can now be revealed Llangefni Town Football Club has been awarded £8,000.
The results have been announced and we will now begin work on bringing our project to life.
Club Chairman, Alwyn Jones, said: “To receive £8,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help fund makes a big difference to a community club like ourselves. This money will be used to improve and upgrade our facilities at the football ground. The ground improvement project will start at the end of May and will hopefully be completed by the start of the new season. Our volunteers are keen to get started.
‘’The project will enable us to take the next step forward in the Club’s continuing development. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those customers who voted for us.”
Caroline Silke, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Bags of Help has been a fantastic success.
“We have been overwhelmed by the response of our customers and the feedback has been brilliant.
“We can’t wait to see the money being put to use bringing these projects to life.
“Nominations for the next round of the initiative will open in April and we look forward to helping a further round of groups and projects bag their share of the bag charge fund.”
Voting ran in store from 27 February until 6 March – with customers choosing which group they’d like to get the top award using a token given to them at the check-out in store.
Tesco estimated that around eight million votes were cast in stores across the UK.
Groundwork’s national chief executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “We have been delighted to have been involved in the Bags of Help project.
“It has been wonderful to follow the projects through the application process to the final announcement.
“This is money which will go directly back into the communities up and down the country creating places to meet people, be active, play or simply relax. This initiative is really putting something back into the local environment, transforming greenspaces and helping the community at a grass-roots level.”
Nominations and applications for the next round of Bags of Help funding will open on April 18. As well as applying direct, suggestions for projects can also be nominated by people
